Dentistry

Regular maintenance of your pet’s teeth and gums is an important part of their overall health. After a thorough examination we’ll make custom recommendations, from daily brushing to a complete cleaning.

Spay & neuter procedure

Our spay and neuter services prioritize the health and safety of your pet. Not only does this surgery prevent unwanted litters, but it can also extend your pet’s life expectancy, reduce or eliminate his or her risk for certain cancers, and decrease problematic behavior.

Surgery and pain medication are included in our canine and feline spay/neuter services. Pre-anesthetic bloodwork, ECG, post-operative laser therapy, e-collar, and microchips are additional, as are fees if females are in heat, pregnant, overweight, or older.

Blood testing & laboratory services

We offer a full-service ambulatory lab, which allows for on-the-go allergy testing, blood profiling, cytology and histopathology, and much more.

General surgery

Should your pet require a surgical procedure—from spay, neuter, and dentistry services to treatment for various orthopedic, soft tissue, and neurologic conditions—our vehicle is equipped with the anesthesia and monitoring equipment needed to provide specialized care, without the hospital visit.

Laser therapy

Class 4 Cold Laser. This sophisticated laser targets the body’s optimal light-absorbing complexes to treat pain and accelerate the healing process. By combining several wavelengths and various modes of delivery, this laser is highly effective in treating pain, decreasing inflammation, and increasing circulation.

On-site diagnostics

Our on-site x-rays, ultrasounds, and blood work provide quick, accurate results. The Premier Paws team uses advanced diagnostic tools to get the detailed information we need to diagnose and treat your pet.

Digital x-ray

Digital x-rays provide our veterinarians with a quick, in-depth look at the condition of your pet. This is a non-invasive procedure that offers high-quality, real-time results that can then inform care.

Digital ultrasounds

Digital ultrasounds allow our veterinarians to evaluate and diagnose your pet’s medical conditions without the need for exploratory surgery. This is a non-invasive procedure that offers high-quality, real-time results that can then inform care.

Medical record review

Our team will do a complete review of diagnostics and treatments that your pet may have undergone with other veterinary practices. We request that you have all the information released, to help us provide the best treatment recommendations possible. Together we’ll discuss your pet’s prognosis for management or recovery.

End-of-life services

Your pet is a member of your family, and as with any loved one, you want to minimize their distress and discomfort. When you’re faced with the difficult decision of using end-of-life services, we lead with compassion in helping you make an informed decision that has your pet’s best interests at heart.

Veterinary hospice

Includes an examination by a veterinarian and a full assessment and discussion with the pet parent of your pet’s quality of life, a custom treatment plan, and review of any medical history.

Euthanasia

At-home euthanasia: You are not alone in this process. Considering a home euthanasia means you are putting the needs, comfort, and quality of life of your pet above your own grief. This is a deeply hard decision, but it’s also an opportunity to show your pet deep love and compassion.

If you’re just starting to consider this option, please discuss it with someone you trust to help determine what constitutes an unacceptable quality of life for your pet. Establishing parameters for your individual pet ahead of time can help provide clarity in the moment.

If you are later in the process and trying to make decisions, here are a few things to consider: You may wish for a private goodbye with minimal people present, or you may prefer to fill the house with loved ones. Your pet might be most comfortable in a favorite spot, either within the house or in an outside location. Also, children process grief deeply, so allow them the option to be present if they wish. Other pets in the household should also be granted the opportunity to visit with your pet after passing. And remember this: There is no right or wrong way to say goodbye.

Once you are ready to schedule a home euthanasia, please give us a call. Our services include an examination and assessment by the veterinarian, a medical history review, and a custom treatment plan driven by your pet’s quality of life.

Cremation

Private cremation: Our private cremation service includes transportation of your pet to a licensed crematory. We’ll cremate your individual pet only, with the ashes returned to you in wooden urn, and provide a clay paw print impression.

Collective cremation: Our collective cremation option is for those who do not wish to have their pet’s ashes returned.
